I don't know if it's a big deal for most people or not, and I realise the issue of "moderating" reviews is an area you'd want to tread carefully. Nonetheless, it kind of irritates me when reviewers either get stuck into a book for past actions of the publisher (or because of issues with a different book) or when people "review" a book before it's even come out.
One of the great things about the flag system is one can feel like you've "done something" without getting into an argument with the other side. At the moment, the only way to comment on a review is to reply in the product thread, which is no doubt not an ideal reaction. I'd like to be able to flag a review as either "inappropriate" in some broad way, or as being made without reading the product (and therefore not a review at all, but rather a promotion or endorsement).
As an alternative, would it be possible to "lock" the ability to post reviews until the product exists?
